Baja California Governor Jaime Bonilla Valdez called the shipping and parcel company FedEx non grata in the state, for refusing to implement measures that combat the shipment of drugs in its service.
«I no longer find how to rate them, they are irresponsible, they reported to me that they found a package with just over three kilos of marijuana, it is impossible for a package with that kind of weight when they are documenting it they do not know… FedEx has devoted itself flagrantly to narco-pulling,» the governor said in a video.

Bonilla Valdez said that by trading internationally, the company «should be more responsible in its attitudes,» as it believes FedEx knows it is contributing in «large scale» to narco-stinging.
«I here as governor of the state, I do not know them as a construction company, it is not a company that wants the best benefit of the Bajacalifornianos, they do not care about the benefit of the Bajacalifornianos, nor their health,» he said.
